your quilts are amazing. I love the "Portraits of Alaska".
Sharon and Jean--
Thanks for the great storage ideas.
Your quilts are magnificent. And you quilt studio makes me sooo envious!
Helen Bell:.it is like having a quilt shop of my own ;o)
Undoubtedly much better than the quilt shop someone else was describing in the back of a house, smelled bad, and a clerk lurking behind them.
Yours looks like a pleasant fun room to escape to.
I love your quilts. The Alaska one is beautiful, and makes me want to go to Alaska, and the cat one is so lifelike.
Helly, I love all your quilts but I think you know that - lol - I especially like the cat and quilt one - that is precious... really great work!
Thanks for the pictures of the Alaskan quilt, Helly!
Love your quilts, Helly!
North Central Ohio
I purchased some of those corregated plastic boards from Clotilde's until Helly told me that she was using the bolts from the LQS for free. Then I went to my LQS asked for them and cut them in half and stored them upright in my shelves. They look really nice and as Helly said they do inspire you to do something, of course since she teaches classes she gets alot more inspiration than I do.
Helly how was your trip to the Bahamas on your beautiful boat???
Aren't you getting ready to take off on your voyage? Would love to be able to stow away.....love sailing and love the Bahamas.
I love your room and stash my DH said it's a shop I wish I had this much room my little room is 6 feet by 8 1/2 feet and I have all my dressmaking fabric too, so while you are away on the boat can you send your room over to me LOL. I love the Bahamas we stayed in the Riu next door to the Atlantis and got to use both hotels.
The wood on your boat looks the same as my dining room furniture. I hope you have a wonderful time while you are away but remember to keep in touch.,
Helen Bell:Here is a picture of some of my stash...I also like to have my fabric out where I can see it so that it inspires me to use it...I really don't like to rummage through boxes to find fabric...
I, too, have open shelves for my stash (though it's not nearly so large as Helly's), but sometimes I wonder if open shelving might be detrimental to the fabric. Do you think cotton fabric might fade along the outer edges over time? Direct sunlight does not hit my shelves, but the indirect light does.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
my fabric is on open shelves. when the blinds are open the room is bright but i don't get direct sunlight on the fabric and when i'm gone the blinds are always closed. i haven't had any noticeable fading on my fabric. gini
